One more note. I think that, in general, backing out local changes
which don't have a strong need to be carried forward is absolutely the
right thing to do. The less hacking we do on these libraries we pull
from other sources, the better, IMHO.

These are the changes updating zlib from 1.2.8 to 1.2.10. It is only used when
building without a system zlib. The new release includes fixes for security
issues CVE-2016-9840, CVE-2016-9841, CVE-2016-9842, CVE-2016-9843.
Checked with a build with disabled system-zlib. Ok for the trunk?
Were there any changes that we needed to carry forward or any changes you needed
to make to the upstream sources?
I backed out the changes to the configure* and Makefile* changes (and only
these), which are completely different to zlib upstream. There are no
additions/deletions to zlib source files, so these build changes still work with
the updated zlib.
